-On January 8, 2002, Ozzie had a pretty good day. He learned of his election to the Hall of Fame in the morning, and in the evening he carried the Olympic torch in the relay to Salt Lake City. Nope, not a bad day at all...
In 2012 he made news headlines by selling all of his Gold Gloves at auction together for more than $500,000.
